Description

Hi all,

I have installed OI Hipster from the October 2015 iso, and have it patched up to the latest as of February 25.

My issue is that after the screensaver comes on (and by "screensaver" I merely mean the screen going black), there doesn't appear to be any way to unlock it, thus neccessitating a hard reboot or shut down.

As a possible clue, I'm wondering if this may have the same root case as bug # 6677 ("Can't exit gdm to console mode")? (They both involve being trapped in black screens with no escape other than hard reboots.)

Cheers,
James
